  • Access content from connected portable devices like music players and digital cameras.
  • Capture and create video from webcams and screen output
  • Use speech recognition and text to speech capabilities.
  • Integrate with the Windows 7 taskbar (Jump Lists, Icon Overlays, Taskbar Progress etc.)
